Hello,

Last time I looked these were £280, now the cheapest I can find is £380, is that right?

Need to buy one but I thought £280 was a lot for this, £380 is getting silly..

Needs must but if anyone knows of a supplier who lets them go for any less than £380, that would be nice.

Thanks
Mark

I just bought one from carparts4less (internet only arm of eurocarparts) for £291.00 Was £354 with a 17% discount from a voucher code found by a google search. They offered a 16% end of month discount on the site (bought end of November).
Strange thing is just check and it is now listed as £400 with a 12% discount so around £354.
Looks like they have increased the price then offered a discount!
Maybe when the discount ends it will drop back down, I don't know if the end of month discount is a common thing.

Hmm interesting, did you quote a part number off the old one to car parts for less for special order or do they stock them anyway?

I have a similar issue with a 996 c4s and the reflector is made by Valeo (who seem so provide all manufacturers etc) but they will not sell it outside of the OPC network so it's £450

Dont forget to change your rear lights at the same time so that they all look the same.

I think it cost me about £700 a couple of years ago.

Sad

Yes, I just did the lens replacement on those. The main reflector wasn't too bad, just a single crack that bugged me but wasn't very noticeable. However with the 'new' rear lights the match wasn't that great.
